It might become problematic very quickly indeed
The press enjoys it wholeheartedly already!

Maybe it would be better if all politicians didn't mess with technology - especially twitter p'raps.

Asked by a lawmaker if nuclear power plants allowed the use of USB drives, a common technology widely considered to be a security risk, Mr. Sakurada did not seem to understand what they were.

“I don’t know details well,” he said. “So how about having an expert answer your question if necessary, how’s that?”
maybe this sort of detachment is a good thing?
only, let's hope his expert advisors are just as wise as he.
